Formula For Changing Date Format 3-12-13 To Format D-mm-yy
Apr 8, 2013
I have a long list of dates that are fomatted as 3-12-13 that I want to format under custom date as d-mmm-yy : 12-Mar-13. I tried to do this but it does not change. I tried to change it to a number and that didn't work either.
I have data in these two formats 7/13/2014 9:24:14 AM and 07/12/2014 13:02. I want them in Am - PM style. I tried date , there is no format which suits my requirement. The first format in excel is general and other is custom under dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm . I have 23k rows, which I cannot afford to change manually.
I've got dates and times in the format of a text string. each string is always formatted in the exact same way to identify the data and time. As such:
Wed Aug 12 16:39:52 BST 2009 Mon Aug 10 14:39:03 BST 2009 Sat Aug 08 18:01:34 BST 2009
And I want to change them to a date formate that excel can understand, so i can search by month, or by date range. The main crux of the question is how to change that string into a excel understandable date though.
If you want to know, this is for my mobile phone bill. I have excel set up to give me a summery of how many texts I've sent, minuets I've used/have remaining. but i want to filter them by month, so I can see how my usage changes.
FYI I put up this question on another forum, however I'm asking it again here b/c I'm not really getting an informative answer there and this project is due soon. [url]
I'm working on a file right now where dates are in the format "06/01/09" meaning 6 Jan 2009. Or more specifically thats what the data is supposed to mean, however when I change it to word form it appears as June 1 2009. This means dates such as "27/01/09" dont get translated.
How can I fix this? I've tried changing the date format, and I've changed the global settings, yet this isnt working.
In case its relevant, before I pasted this data into the current spreadsheet my global settings were set at month day year, which is what I prefer. But the rest of the office works on DMY so I'm switching to that.
When I tried to import data in a CSV file, I ran into a couple of issues when trying to change the date format from MM/DD/YYY to other date format. I've already tried a couple things to no avail:
1. Use text to column functions and change the format from text to MMDDY 2. Use format cell function and change the date format 3. Use the text function (text(Cell,"MM-YY"))
Interestingly when I click on the cell and put my cursor and press backspace, the format will change. It seems like there's an extra space, but using the trim function does not work. I can't do this to thousands of data manually.
I have a list with several thousand dates listed like:
19931014 19900724 19910701 19911209
That is, yyyymmdd.
I would like to list it as yymm only. Is there a way to convert it in Excel? I have for a long time been copying and pasting in to Word then doing a search and replace of the first and last two digits, which results in the yymm format I am looking for. A better way would be nice.
In order to export an excel table into another program I first need to save the excel file as .txt. The .txt file can then be imported by the other program.
First I however need to make excel understand that the value should be a text and not a value. I therefore format the number as text (0000150235) by adding "0000150235". After saving the file as .txt the format changes from "0000150235" to """0000150235""". I do however need the format in the .txt file to be "0000150235". Can anyone tell me how I can save "0000150235" as .txt and get the value "0000150235" in the .txt file.
in the date fields excel only recognises some of them as date, so when I try to change the format of dates (mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy) it only changes some of them so I end up with some wrong dates.how I can make excel read them all as date?
When I remove "Release date:" from "Release date:24 December 2008," excel will automatically change the text to "24-Dec-08." Yes, I did try to format the column to "text" before using find and replace.
This wouldn't be a problem, except that half the dates are in Dutch, so only half the dates are changed, which means that I can't make all date formats in a column uniform.
One of the reports I run provides me information on lengths of time. Such a field displays as |0:09:16| indicating 9 minutes and 16 seconds. However, when the report generates the excel spreadsheet it saves these cells in date/time format ([h]:mm:ss). If I were to convert this field to the number format (so I can manipulate and graph it) it displays as such |0.00643460648148148| Ideally I would be able to have the data in the field stored as |556| (556 seconds, or 9 minutes 16 seconds). I have thousands of fields that I need to manipulate where the data is stored in this format and I can not figure out how to fix it.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet where the default number format keeps switching to the date format. I keep switching it back and it'll stay as a number format for a time, but then it'll switch back. This is also the case for any new worksheets in that one spreadsheet.
This only happens with this one file - everything else behaves according to my regional settings or to how the file had been previously formatted.
I have two columns where there are dates (e.g. 11/05/2009) in a date format; I would like to change the format to `general`; but without losing the original values, i.e. I still want to see 11/05/2009, but just in `general`format. Is it possible to create a macro that will do that? I want these values to stay in the same place, i.e. if it is in cell K10, I still want to have it there - just in other format.
I have an excel sheet full of dates in text format and want to convert them into regular format. For instance, one of the dates listed is in text as "60801". I'd like it to show in regular date format of mm/dd/yyyy, so that 60801 becomes 8/1/2006.
I have a problem where i am just trying to do a simple copy of dates from one spreadsheet to another
18/03/2008 00:00 however when the its copied to the other spreassheet is changes to the US date formate 3/18/2008 0:00 I need to keep the format as date as the date needs to be the current day. How do i get this to remain UK
In D2 I have: =B2 In D3 I have manually input: (space)3-08
As you can see the CONCATENATE puts the "39569" date in A2 But the second line puts the text date as I prefer. What I would like to do is put in a formula or macro in D2 and down that will change the "Mar-08" to "3-08" so it CONCATENATEs correctly to column A. Simply: I'm trying to avoid manually inputing the text version "3-08" (or whatever M-Y) into D2 down a hundred or so rows!
I have a column in excel which gets populated in the format "2/1/1980" when copied from a different source. I want a macro to run on this column and convert this in the below format. Required format: '02-01-80 (note the ' symbol before 02 which will keep it as text)
I need this macro to run on two columns and replace them with the required format. I can do a find and replace either in the sheet or through hard coding the VBA, but as the date format keeps growing, I would need to do this via code and hence requesting the same.
I have txtboxes in which I write date in format dd/mm/yyyy but if I want to put date in cell correctly from this textbox in need to declare event on exit -change format to mm/dd/yyyy and then it puts date in desired format which is dd/mm/yyyy and my regional settings are English(uk)
Is there a way to put any date format in textbox and in cell there will always be format dd/mm/yyyy or at least if date is entered in format dd/mm/yyyy that also in cell the same format is putted
I have a workbook containing 5 sheets. Sheet1 is my results page and the balance contains employee names and dates training completed(matrix)
On sheet1 I have 4 columns - 1name, 2type of training, 3date completed & 4refresher due. I have created a combobox and used the vlookup formula to populate the cells within the third column but I seem to have a problem with the date format. In the 4th column I have used this formula (=c2+365) this displays a new date one year on, but if an individual hasn't completed training and the cell within c2 is blank it defaults to this - 30/12/1902. If cell c2 is blank I would like d2 to be blank too.
In one excel file, i have a date , and i set this to "dd/mm/yy hh::mm am/pm" format. From another file i will open this file and i need to copy that date to this file. My question is , before copying i need to check it is in the "dd/mm/yy hh::mm am/pm" format using vba.
